Thank you for the input.

 

I followed this tutorial to the letter and had good success however; on a test system I can only install the OS to the drive which has the ISO and grub on it.

 

Any suggestions or is there something I have done wrong?

 

EDIT:

 

I had the hard drive on a raid controller without knowing. Whoops.

 

Solveded.

 

Tutorial 43 FTW.

I have been attempting to make a SSD multiboot using Grub4Dos, RMPrepUSB and FiraDisk for high speed installations of windows. (I realize its not exactly rmprepusb's intended use)

 

Everything is fine up until I get to declaring which drive to install Windows to; there's nothing there and it asks me for drivers.

 

I can access the hard drive and view the files from inside the windows installation (8/7/Vista) when i go to browse location for drivers.

I have not yet tried to load drivers for the motherboard AHCI, however some computers don't have an option to switch to and from AHCI; and even in IDE SATA operation the drives still don't appear.

 

What am I doing wrong and what tutorials would you suggest for this kind of application?

 

Keep in mind it must be able to install 8, 7, Vista and XP both x86 and x64 (minus XP for x64), as well as all Home Premium and Professional versions plus Basic for Vista.

 

Thanks,

 

Oriphen

Tutorial 43 gives instructions on what to do if using a hard disk rather than a flash drive.
